Samakee Brand Launch
Did you know that the Thai word for “togetherness” is Samakee?
It was with great pleasure that we welcomed so many parents and friends of the school to our Brand Launch Party on Friday 18th October to celebrate “Samakee”. For this special day, the children and their teachers abandoned normal routines and spent the morning immersed in Samakee’s “7 Key Values”. A range of inspiring and imaginative activities, designed to help our children understand the meaning of the “I” statements, were investigated; the children experienced first hand – “something BIG about I”.
At Samakee we promote 7 key values and they underpin the attitudes and characteristics of effective learning that we cherish and nurture in our children. These “I” statements explain our beliefs, guide our everyday activities, the experiences we provide at Samakee, and make our school truly unique.
A special assembly followed the children’s fun filled morning with many important guests – children, staff, directors’ and parents. After many months of work refreshing our brand, it was delightful to celebrate our achievements with our guests as we officially launched the new brand for “St Andrews Samakee”.
A community gathering was also the perfect occasion for a momentous announcement – Samakee is expanding to include Year 7-9! This will be a gradual expansion starting with Year 7 next academic year, 2014-2015, and we are tremendously excited to take this gigantic leap forward! We sincerely appreciate the ongoing support and encouragement that we have received from all past and present members of our Samakee community. A very special thank you must go to the “dotdotdot team” who have been exceptionally supportive and creative throughout the refresh process – thank you!
